3:27 AM
sigh
If there's another rollback war over the confused user tags, flag and ping me directly please...
 
@JourneymanGeek How about imposing "martial law" when it comes to that tag? If someone uses it, immediately remove it and lock the question. What do you think?
 
@SonictheK-DayHedgehog I have ideas on how to deal with it :D
 
how long does a tag not need to be in use to get nuked? :D
 
There's a script that runs once every 24 hours, removing all zero-use tags
So it needs to be used on no questions for at most 24 hours to be removed
 
3:33 AM
.... only?
 
Alternatively, try and get ahold of a CM to destroy the tag
 
Ok, yeah, let me know :D
 
Thanks for handling that. If it happens again, I'm sure Sonic will beat me to pinging you ;)
ahem
Saw that ;)
 
But yeah, suspending a user for a short period for the prevention of vandalism is an option
I'd rather not but yanno
hm, on point ad on reddit - some company doing transhipping of stuff from the US has notifications for 3080s being in stock
which, while I'd probably get it directly locally or from place that ships here, gives me a chance to gauge stock
 
Friend of mine's on a wait list. Fairly high up on it, I guess?
Still waiting. Talks about the woes of the store he's on the wait list for and how they're incapable of getting the 3000-series.
 
3:42 AM
ya
most of us are lol
I'm more miffed cause cyberpunk 2077 is coming out and the timing would be perfect to get an RTX card :D
 
3:53 AM
yup
its worse than the 2000 series release, which was mucked up by bitcoin miners
even they apparently can't get stocks
I'm trying to talk myself out of getting a 2060 as a temp card. Its slightly better than my 980 ti and I can game at 1080 (quarter my screen res) if I can crank everything else up
it would be a simpler decision of phy-x co-processing was still a thing, or explicit multi gpu took off :D
 
Yeah nah I would stick it out.
I'm sure the manufacturers will catch up with demand... right? ... right?
Maybe I'm being overly optimistic.
 
eventually
or I'll go red, since I'm sure AMD's implimentation will eventually be supported cause consoles
so If I am going to wait, and its supported, its an option
figure it should be ok to wait till mid nov
@Spevacus lol. I do have a second/older PC I'm doing some experiments on, so I could toss a spare card in there
 
4:09 AM
Heck yeah. Power that bad boy up.
 
oh...
its kinda...
maxed out on ram (low cost chinese stuff for half of it) and has a few other upgrades
with a decent video card, despite being about 7-8 years old, it mostly holds it own...
other than the sound being broken
and I'm playing with moonlight so I can set it up as a headless gaming box :D
on the other hand
the 980 TI I have now is perfectly fine for that
 
4:34 AM
Ooh, moonlight, eh?
 
yup
since I run mostly nvidia cards
kinda been messing with it on and off, but nothing serious...
I'm hoping to get it working on the slightly potato NUC I expect to die at any time and want to plug into our old TV :D
(I went through 3 under warranty, and no 3 sat in its box for years cause I was fed up and bought a different model ;D )
it does do VGA, as does my old TV so in theory I can fire it up for some 640x480 plasma TV goodness :D
(if it dies, I do have a plan B but meeeeeh)
@Spevacus its reasonably easy to set up...
but my test system was wierd
I basically was running it on a spare PC, and didn't have a monitor spare
so I went NUC -> Video capture card -> 'Camera' app on windows, on the same PC the game was running on ;D
 
4:52 AM
@JourneymanGeek Seems like the tag has been purged from the system now, so using it now requires 300 rep.
 
Also, the 10k+ tag editing tool makes it easy to miss making copyedits in the same revision
 
lol
Well I missed the error to start with, and I was noting the multiple tag edits :D
 
5:18 AM
confused
oh wait, the user has to be plural
 
5:45 AM
hm, now the 3080 on newegg is listed as "not shipping to singapore"
that's new :/
 
 
3 hours later…
8:27 AM
@MetaAndrewT. ist?
@JourneymanGeek and 4080?
 
pluralisticity
 
@ShadowWizardWearingMask Maybe if I had a time machine :D
(the next model is the 3090... 3070 release is in 2 days which hopefully will give me some options)
 
@JourneymanGeek so 2080?
Anyway, in Amazon it's almost impossible to find sellers who ship to Israel.
And those who do, take insane delivery charges, e.g. $100 just for the delivery.
Still, sometimes it's cheaper.
 
@ShadowWizardWearingMask strangely?
More expensive
by quite a bit
 
@JourneymanGeek where?
Amazon?
 
8:36 AM
@ShadowWizardWearingMask in general
 
the 2000 series was super pricy
the prices should drop once the 3000 series is out buuuuut
tbh if I wanted to get an interim card, the 2060 non super is a better choice
 
BTW @Journeyman locking all the questions with a bad tag isn't a good idea since it prevents downvotes and prevents deletion by the users. If it's repeated behavior, the user should be suspended since they're doing it on purpose just to annoy the users of the site.
 
its a modest improvement over my 3080
 
(didn't read everything, but noticed you talked about it here)
 
8:40 AM
@ShadowWizardWearingMask I gave the user a warning. Now that the tag is gone, I can unlock it
well once I find em ._.
 
One is deleted, I think.
The other is off the homepage with -10, but it's here.
 
sorted then
 
What? Confused users were attacking MSE by using ?

8:46 AM
@ShadowWizardWearingMask not sure if the user is a spammer
 
Well there is D&D spell called Confusion, think level 4.
 
OH
I SEE
 
@JourneymanGeek umm
Pure spam. 100%
With sauce.
 
ya, just say that
 
8:47 AM
Don't you see list of all their posts in the profile page? @Journeyman
 
@ShadowWizardWearingMask I'm on my phone
 
@MetaAndrewT. huh! Thought it's deleted since I didn't see it on the user's profile of the one who posted the more recent question with the tag... so it means they created sock account. If we'll see upvotes on their posts, worth checking if it's illegal voting.
 
@MetaAndrewT. done
 
@JourneymanGeek ohhh. So you have to search for deleted:1 to see it...
(with the user id)
 
9:07 AM
more like I'm not fully paying attention

Damn, icercream in my espresso...
It's not my day today
 
That's the revenge for bashing on hot milk with coffee.
I like hot milk, with cocoa or coffee :P
 
I guess Karma really is a Btch
 
Eh, a likeable Btch in this case ;)
 
Thats subject to debate @Tinkeringbell
 
Well, bring it on ;) It's Monday and I'm basically waiting for people to finish updating the dev server...
Programming in Notepad only gets me this far...

@SonictheK-DayHedgehog ... good question
 
sdc blame᠎ ‍᠎‍‍​⁠
 
@SonictheK-DayHedgehog It's Luuklag's fault.
 
ofcourse it is
 
11:01 AM
quick deleting @Tinkeringbell meta.stackexchange.com/posts/355824/timeline
 
Meh. I've been faster but I don't have my lost soul script on the work laptop :P
 
Rob
Guesstimating what they meant is probably more complex than the question itself.

11:59 AM
Interesting voting spread on my latest question. I wonder if the downvotes are cause they don't like the change or they feel I should know this as a mod 😁
 
Definitely the latter ;)

@Ollie That's not blue

@Spe did you hear that?
 
listens closely
Wabbits?
 
Ah, I wondered what that thunder in the distance was.
 
Yup
Also, noticed the name of GMail's new logo is ogo_gmail_lockup_default_1x_r2.png. Why "lockup"??
 
Whosoever, be they worthy, shall haveth the poowwaaaaaa
 
2:23 PM
Due to Corona?
 
gmail's a criminal!
 
Do you all see it? ^^
Or only those with active gmail/Google account?
 
maybe it's two humans handing each other an envelope?
 
Or downvote arrow!
 
I see it as well.
 
2:26 PM
a heart stand?
 
lol
going to ask on WebApps.SE
enjoying the suspension for low quality contribution
:D
 
i hadn't seen the new logo as of saturday, app hasn't updated yet on ios
 
typo's in production, I'm moving it!
 
2:51 PM
@ShadowWizardWearingMask Heh really?

3:12 PM
Faded Giant opens up about why he could not agree with the new mod agreement draft
4. You have to sign in advance that you will “abide by all other officially announced moderator and user policies” that will be released in the future. Of course, I will not give such a carte blanche to these people in advance, especially considering that many of their meta announcements in the past have been really terrible. — Faded Giant yesterday
There was a period of about two weeks with “a diamond, but no PII access”, which actually meant no access to any useful moderator tools at all – I couldn’t even see the list of flags. — Faded Giant yesterday
Well OK
 
that's fair
 
:eyes:
 
:eyes:
 
@M.A.R. if I'll ask about GMail's logo? Of course. ;)
 
Hmm, didn't work
👀
There you go

> Google is replacing its iconic Gmail envelope logo with a design that's a lot more in keeping with other Google products. The new Gmail logo is now an M made out of Google's core blue, red, yellow, and green brand colors.
 
@DavidPostill sure, but it doesn't explain why the logo image name contain "lockup". :)
 
...It a SE kind of Christmas, with tire fires, fighting and blame... (on the notes of "It's a pony kind of Christmas")
Winter is coming, the cold season is here, and the recent tradition of warming and singing around the fire has come back again. Just... don't mind the smoke or the smell of burnt tires....
 
My cookies are broken. :(
I put those which survived in a jar.
 
that chocolate... looks like miso, not a good sign.
 
@Νеvеrꭑoꭇе it's rich with coffee.
 
4:16 PM
another thing I can't say I love - chocolate+coffee or chocolate+mint... both "nope, thanks, eat that yourself" :P
 
That's how it should look like:
@Νеvеrꭑoꭇе oh, I will eat. :D
 
@ShadowWizardWearingMask go ahead, I will gladly let you have those.
 
Rob
@ShadowWizardWearingMask logo_gmail_lockup_default_2x_r2.png is to detect (search for) infringements: google.com/permissions/logos-trademarks - such as Frame or scraping.
 
@Νеvеrꭑoꭇе thanks!

Ever?

@Rob Never?
@Rob still not sure

@Rob Obviously, a reference to "Lenore Cellio", a character in the poem.
.... Maybe I should replace the avatar with a picture of a raven.
 
4:31 PM
@Νеvеrꭑoꭇе can you do it? Thought you have zombie chat accounts.
(i.e. without parent account that you can actually edit.)
 
Urgh... 15 minutes to finish something that should take 1 hour. Cya!
 
@ShadowWizardWearingMask good question, it depend on how bugged the whole process is.
 
4:51 PM
@Rob We are all mad here.... me, the local Parrot/Fairy hybrid, the blue erinaceinae, the Owl and its host, even the innocent looking Rubik cube with antlers....

@Νеvеrꭑoꭇе Are you accusing me of being sane? How dare you! :)

Hey all, I retagged all questions tagged [bounties]+[grace-period] to use the [expired-bounty] tag, instead of the grace period, except for one, where the combined use does make sense.
 
well... I noticed ...
 
it were only 10 questions, so shouldn't be too much of a flood ;)
 
Hey @SonictheK-DayHedgehog (Or anyone else)... before I slap a status-review tag on it, can you confirm meta.stackexchange.com/q/291299/369802 is still happening?
 
@Tinkeringbell Confirmed, still an issue. I skipped interpersonal.stackexchange.com/review/low-quality-posts/21678 and now I can't review it.
 
Okay. I'll add the tag then, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was by-design: After all, once you've skipped something, it won't show up in the queue again usually either.
 
7:20 PM
Yeah confirmed on SO too @Tinkeringbell
 
It's allowed for other review queues, though, and an alternative valid response to the bug report is to remove it for the other queues instead of opening it for this queue
 
Sure, which is why I'll add the tag :D
@Luuklag Great! Thanks for taking the time to check, both of you :D
 
np @Tinkeringbell, could use some good karma after making 10 edits in a row ;)
 
No more :D
 
blinks
Hey, where'd that go?
 
I was hungry.
 
You didn't even season it!
 
Dutch people don't do much of that.
Just put mayonnaise on it and it's fine.
 
7:34 PM
There are worse things to season with, I suppose.
 
Yep. Apple sauce.

7:45 PM
blegh shopping is so slow today.. I've clicked 3 times before the page even finished loading :(
 
Try going to an actual store and having to sort of do a 'March of the penguins' behind several other people. I'm sure clicking a few times isn't as bad ;)
 
@Tinkeringbell I usually end up doing both, because some items appear to be out-of-stock at the time they gather my order :/
 
Ugh. That sucks... that way internet shopping basically doesn't have any use.
 
luckily I work from home these days, so I can just go at some quite hour to the store
 
"bejaardenuurtje"? ;)
 
7:49 PM
hahaha, not that old yet. Closing in on 30's though, so yeah almost bejaard
 
Same here, though with the obesitas I could probably argue my way into the store by then for 'health risks'
 
Well a while back I ended up in one of the bejaardenuurtjes at Jumbo, they just though the last hour before closure would be an appropriate time (20:00-21:00). Nobody said anything about it. I didn't even spot one senior at that time.
 
Heh, yeah. I haven't visited any bejaardenuurtjes, but I've been to the supermarket during regular hours (on Friday, so one of the more busy days anyways) a few times... plenty of seniors there, some even without masks.
 
pfft just finished scheduling my work visits to Friesland for wednesday, only 424 km to drive
 
424? Where the heck are you living, Belgium?
 
8:02 PM
near Utrecht
Going to Friesland, doing a round-trip there, and then back
 
I was joking ;)
But yeah, that's quite a drive.
 
How is your new car Tink? Picked it up yet?
 
Yep! Picked it up on Saturday and I love it so far :D The adaptive cruise control is great: I encountered one of those assholes that merges in front of you way too early, and the car did all the work before I even realised it!
 
Yeah, those things are reallly great. I tested it once with a friend. Going 140 and then merging to the right lane just behind a truck
 
The only thing I have to get used to a bit is the size, if that makes sense. It's not very big car but I still need to get a bit more feeling of where the wheels are and how much space I'm occupying on the road.
Yesterday we went for a drive through the forest, and I ended up going a bit too much to the right at times.
 
8:08 PM
Yeah that always takes getting used to. These days I know my care pretty good, and often scare passengers by going close through a "wegversmalling"
 
@Luuklag The only downside is that it will pick up traffic on the left of you too. And my mom didn't realise that as soon as you're besides that traffic or past it, the car would accelerate again. So she pulled up to a traffic light then had the car accelerate back to 50km/h for a right turn XD
Scared the sh*t out of me.
@Luuklag I hate it when people do that! Just go first or let me go first... XD
 
hahaha yeah, cruisecontrol is only usefull on highways
 
Yep :D
 
@Tinkeringbell It's more that I can fit next to an oncoming bike within them, but you need to know how big your car, and the road, is.
 
Though it can also be useful on long 50/60/80km stretches...
@Luuklag Yeah. I'll stick behind the bike and make them feel rushed :P
 
9:09 PM
@SonictheK-DayHedgehog, It looks like you chose the wrong link for "clear, explicit instructions that that tag is not to be used, and existing uses of it should be removed".. there's nothing clear, explicit or remotely instruction shaped in that link. May I also suggest that an edit note of 'tag is being burninated' is perhaps not that helpful in explaining why their post has been edited to a new contributor =) — Rob 1 min ago
@Rob (responding to your comment in chat) There are clear, explicit instructions behind the link. Journeyman Geek said to wait one week for anyone to raise objections (the week ended on October 17), and then "fire up the reaper" (i.e. begin removing the tag) if no objections were raised (which is what happened).
 
@SonictheK-DayHedgehog probably was more helpful to have a direct link to that answer then?
 
Yeah, I'm used to copying links from the URL bar rather than using share links...in this case, I had manually removed the question title to satisfy the character limit.
Also, in hindsight, I do feel that linking to the question was appropriate, since it sets out the rationale for removing the tag.
 
Rob
9:27 PM
@Tinkeringbell You have to add the Cutter to prevent that behavior.
 
I think I'll stick with the cruise control.
 
Rob
No interpersonal skills in that.
 
@Rob Nope, but a bunch of intrapersonal ones ;) And without those, you can't really do the interpersonal ones well ;)
 
Rob
Nowadays they make Projection Headlights that detect oncoming traffic, even pedestrians; and when a person is detected the lights paint a crosswalk to indicate that the vehicle is fully stopped and you are waving them across.

@Catija You here?
 
@Luuklag that's quite a lot of edits at once ._.
Do mind the front page (trickling edits is very very nice) and got a burnination permit request for that tag? :D
